From the lush Himalayan foothills of Bhutan, to scenic Naini Tal and bustling city of Kolkata (formerly Calcutta),the vibrant streets of Kathmandu, and the majestic fjords of Norway – Life’s journey has taken Milly to many wonderful places across the globe. She now calls Canada home and embraces the ever-changing beauty that the four seasons bring to her garden and the Canadian landscape.
Milly was artistically inclined from a young age. She is mainly a self-taught artist, and has taken various art courses over the years for fresh insights on technique and application.
A keen gardener with a deep love for nature and the outdoors, the blooms in Milly’s garden and the places she has visited are often the sources of her inspiration.
As an artist, her painting style will evolve as her craft continues to develop. Her curiosity to learn, explore and work with different mediums will no doubt influence her artistic development.
Milly paints predominantly on canvas with acrylic as her chosen medium. She also enjoys drawing with colour pencils, painting with oils and water colours. Her creativity is not limited to brushes however - she can wield a crochet hook, knitting needles and sewing machine with equal passion and creativity when she wants to step away from her paints and brushes.
Her paintings have found homes in the US, India and Canada. She continues to take part in juried shows, competitions and exhibitions. Being recognised in such events gives her the encouragement to pursue her passion for which she is thankful.
